Founded by award winning independent filmmakers who were involved with the "independent underground cinema revolution” in the early and mid-1960’s, The Berkeley Video + Film Festival was created in 1990 to provide a venue for independent film and videomakers creating works that challenge and confront our notions of "Electronic Cinema”.
The 29th edition of the event is currently underway from October 26 – November 1, 2020.
